Why So Obsessed?
Pre-Celiac diagnosis, I lived on Quaker Lower Sugar Instant Oatmeal. Post-Celiac diagnosis, I still live on oatmeal – but of course, I had to find a gluten free alternative.
Now, 80% of my panic attacks are attributed to realizing I’ve run out of this stuff – Eco Planet Instant Hot Cereal. I’m partial (read: addicted) to the Apples & Cinnamon flavor, but they also offer Maple & Brown Sugar, and Original. Regardless of the variety, they collectively kick regular oatmeal’s ass. Beyond whole oats, this cereal also has buckwheat, sorghum, brown rice, amaranth, quinoa (!), and millet. It’s a veritable whole grains party! The overall texture is a bit finer than what you may be used to, but I find it much more enjoyable. You can read more about it here.
So Where Can I Get It?
I’ve had trouble consistently finding it in stores, so I buy it online. Eco Planet sells it directly on their website, but I’ve found it to be cheaper via Amazon. Through the link below, it’s $5.21/box of 6 packs. Shipping is $4.99, so I always order the maximum # of boxes – which is 6.
PS. This is part of a new column aptly called Gluten Sucks, This Doesn't. Each week or two I'll bring you one gluten free staple that I absolutely, positively cannot live without. And - where you can get it! These are not sponsored, and I have grocery receipts/cabinets full of the stuff to prove it ;)
